Linx TT5 washdown printer

Linx Printing Technologies has launched an IP65-rated version of its thermal transfer overprinter. The Linx TT5 washdown printer uses a specially designed washdown cassette during washdown routines, to ensure that the equipment is protected against water and dust ingress.

The coder will reduce downtime and the inconvenience associated with washing down thermal transfer printers.

The IP65-rated washdown cassette is inserted in place of a standard ribbon cassette prior to washdown. This process is achieved within seconds and seals the printer for maximum protection, which means that the printer can be left on the host packaging machine during washdown.

The printer’s controller has been redesigned so that it is IP55 rated once the connectors at the base of the printer have their protective caps in place – which is quick and easy to do. The new version is the same width as the standard TT5 printer controller so it still fits into existing brackets.

Typical applications for the TT5 washdown printer are in food factories, including meat, fish and frozen foodstuffs, where a washdown is required to meet hygiene regulations.
